    You should probably start a new thread on this side topic. I'll be glad to go there and see if this can be resolved. You'll get more people seeing it too with its own proper title, etc.
    I think this horse is dead. I thank all of you for your help.

    Thank you very much for the info. I just finished reading Paul Thurrott's blog about the digital licensing scheme MSFT uses. Yes, I believe you all now. I did the upgrade just prior to July 29th and rolled back a couple of days later. The only thing is that I never installed the AU since it wasn't out at the time.
    Yes, this forum is chock full of assistance. Just like the SevenForum which I have been a member of for several years.
    The previous Consumer Release had Digital Entitlements too, the AU just added the linked to your Microsoft account part. Not having upgraded to the AU won't affect activation.
    I'm a member of 7 8 and 10 forums, same username on all three. I don't go to 7 or 8 forums as much as I probably should though. Once or twice a week maybe. I'm here every day, several times a day though.

    As long as you've installed one version of Windows , you have a perpetual digital license and can update/upgrade at any time. I'm assuming you're not on the Insider Program, but if you are, or wish to be, Build 14901 came out a couple of days ago. The AU is basically Build 14393.51 (or .64).

    BTW, there are small footprint USB printers you can use with the Lenovo. You can get a Logitech or Microsoft mouse for less than $30 aslo.

    Right-click Start, click System, will show if Activated at the bottom of the panel. Mine is with the same expiration date. The "final" or RTM release which is also called Anniversary Update is slowly reaching the RTM users. As for Insider Preview [BETA testing], it seems it will be continuing and always be a version/build or more 'newer' than the RTM. Looking down the road Windows may be setting things up to continue with Anniversary version upgrades on a schedule, maybe yearly. It is quite confusing to many folks when having 2 versions of the same OS available and I think there's been some with the RTM version that inadvertantly got the later Insider Preview update installed.
